Excerpt from A Letter From the Right Honourable Edmund Burke to a Noble Lord: On the Attacks Made Upon Him and His Pension, in the House of Lords by the Duke of Bedford and the Earl of Lauderdale, Early in the Present Sessions of Parliament
I Could hardly flatter myself with the hope, that so very early in the season I should have to acknowledge obligations to the Duke of Bedford and to the Earl of Lauderdale. These noble persons have lost no time in conferring upon me, that sort of honour, which it is alone within their competence, and which it is certainly most congenial to their nature and their manners to bestow.
To be ill spoken of, in whatever language they speak, by the zealots of the new sect in philosophy and politicks, of which these noble persons think so charitably, and of which others think so justly, to me, is no matter of uneasiness or surprise.
